Deep Learning Weekly
Hey Folks,
this week we bring you a new tool from Google, take a look at Chinas Social Credit System, peek into the “Hey Siri” detector and check out the state of the art in self-driving cars. We then move to a great visual guide to evolution strategies, inspect the equations governing differentiable neural computers, revisit the old AI tank legend and learn how to unit test machine learning code.
Happy hacking and reading. As always if you enjoy receiving this newsletter you can help us by sharing it with friends and colleagues.
See you later this week!
